|Relevant Texts of Doors3: Info-Eco
November 1995 Ecology is the study of connections and processes. The objectives of design will increasingly shift away from finished products and documents towards the processes by which they are made. It is in this context that we have selected the following texts and extracts for you to read as part of your engagement with the subject of information and the environment. We are using five categories to structure the texts:
- 1. Ecology: environment, science, process, complexity, etc.
- 2. Information: computers, networks, etc.
- 3. Behaviour: people, knowledge, community, etc.
- 4. Economy: business, politics, work, scenarios, etc.
- 5. Design: art, design, matter, etc.
